Strona iii - At the first appearance of any person, they set off in full gallop ; and, at the distance of two or three hundred yards, make a wheel round, and come boldly up again, tossing their heads in a menacing manner ; on a sudden, they make a full stop, at the distance of forty or fifty yards, looking wildly at the object of their surprise ; but upon the least motion being made they all again turn round, and fly off...
Strona iv - If any person come near the calves, they clap their heads close to the ground, and lie like a hare in form to hide themselves...
Strona 564 - The decomposition slowly proceeds beneath the soil ; the soluble matters are gradually dissolved, and the slight fermentation that goes on, checked by the want of a free communication of air, tends to render the woody fibre soluble without occasioning the rapid dissipation of elastic matter. When old pastures are broken up and made arable, not only has the soil been enriched by the death and slow decay of the plants which have left soluble matters in the soil ; but the leaves and roots of the grasses...
Strona iv - ... off with equal speed, but not to the same distance; forming a shorter circle and again returning with a bolder and more threatening aspect than before, they approach much nearer, probably within thirty yards, when they make another stand, and again fly off; this they do several times, shortening their distance and advancing nearer till they come within ten yards, when most people think it prudent to leave them, not choosing to provoke them further ; for there is little doubt but in two or three...
Strona 564 - Green crops, pond weeds, the paring of hedges or ditches, or any kind of fresh vegetable matter, requires no preparation to fit them for manure.

Strona iv - The mode of killing them was perhaps the only modern remains of the grandeur of ancient hunting. On notice being given that a wild bull would be killed on a certain day, the inhabitants of the neighbourhood...
Strona ii - The capital employed in agriculture, therefore, not only puts into motion a greater quantity of productive labour than any equal capital employed in manufactures, but in proportion too to the quantity of productive labour which it employs, it adds a much greater value to the annual produce of the land and labour of the country, to the real wealth and revenue of its inhabitants. Of all the ways in which a capital can be employed, it is by far the most advantageous to the society.
Strona 561 - There can be no doubt that the straw of different crops immediately ploughed into the ground affords nourishment to plants; but there is an objection to this method of using straw, from the difficulty of burying long straw, and from its rendering the husbandry fouL When straw is made to ferment, it becomes a more manageable manure ; but there is likewise on the whole a great loss of nutritive matter. More manure is perhaps supplied for a single crop; but the land is less improved than it would be,...
Strona iv - ... a few steps, and bolted at his legs with all its force ; it then began to paw again, bellowed, stepped back, and bolted as before; but...
